The new Chucky felt less believable . I mean,   the old one ran on magic, OK, magic is pretty powerful stuff.

The new chucky runs on a battery, toy class servos, toy risc. 

The technology does not exist to make such a small toy with that many capabilities and that much force output.

It'd need a small diesel engine to do all that stuff.

Yeah not a big fan of the new Chucky at all. Less believable overall even compared to literal magic, plus it just felt forced to me.

New SO not into horror. Haven't been into the scene like I used to, and it's tragic.

Send me suggestions here if you can.

Saw IT part 2, it was underwhelming. Might write up a short review when I can. Felt like the only thing to come out of the movie was fanfic of Eddie and Richie that seems to be rampant now on tumblr and other sites. I think it improved on the old movie's part 2, but still didn't grab me like the first.

The entire It franchise is ****ing dumb. I don't care if it's popular, that doesn't make it good. All the characters are annoying, the idea is dumb, and Pennywise makes me laugh every time he's on screen.

Just as stupid as the original movie, but in different new and stupid ways.

I can agree that the movies are kinda dumb overall, new IT chapter 1 was a "good" dumb for me though, personally.

The book was much better, as I could build the imagery in my mind.

I think the clown idea these days is hella played out, but when IT first came out it was at least relatively new, in the pop culture sense.

The original movie almost gives me Twin Peaks vibes with it's levels of weirdness.

Just watched Ready Or Not and really enjoyed it. A fresh twist on a classic premise, definitely worth a watch and one of the better recent horror comedies.

Finally finished second half of Lighthouse.

It gives me the same impression as the Witch.. < Uncertain > if this is a good movie.

Kind of like reading chaucer, it sounds different and fresh, buh is it really good stuff ?

For example, you can translate chaucer to modern-plain-speak, and it wouldn't read any more profoundly than common sense idioms.



In modern times, we criticize Super hero movies for all CGI and no substance.

Is Florid writing not of the same vanity.

Watched the Jason (2009) reboot last night and it was ****, no wonder they didn't keep going with that.  Terrible direction, terrible acting, dislikable characters, and they somehow gave Jason LESS personality if that were at all possible.

The movie sucks - stick to the classics.

Very ****ing true, no idea why they try and refresh what was already iconic in that way. It's something that only works with the aesthetic of the time, and they nailed it then. Don't fix what aint broke.

The Refresh has to be done, because the entirety of his and her circumstances has been done in some way.

Originality in plot is no longer possible.

This has been the case for hundreds of years, but before the internet, something was always new to someone.

Post internet, everyone has seen everything.

When Dsnail and Nturtle die, the younger generation will consider their lifetime iterations the original, and during midlife they will critique new stuff using the same remarks as y'allzus.

yeah because that's how teenagers these days feel about Ghostbusters and Jumanji  :rolleyes:

classics will always and forever be classics. that's why they are considered classics.

The only way it's a horror, is just how bad the movie is tbh
